HC Deb 01 June 1888 vol 326 cc880-1
MR. M'LAREN (Cheshire, Crewe)

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he can promise that the Correspondence regarding the Indian Contagious Diseases Act, &c., and the Despatch from the Secretary of State on the same subject, both of which were ordered to be printed some time ago, shall be distributed to Members before Tuesday, June 5, in time for the discussion on that subject on that day?


The Correspondence was laid on the Table by me on the 10th of May, the Secretary of State's Despatch showing the action taken by Her Majesty's Government on the 17th of May. The latter will, I am told, be distributed on Monday; the former not till after Tuesday, the 5th of June. The Secretary of State has no control over the printing of these Papers.
